.Hi Julie -

Thanks for checking in and telling us about Pete's wonderful 10-year milestone. It's always nice to hear updates from the 53rd Street Gang!

As for Pete's recent toilet problems, they might be related to pelvic floor muscles that become weaker and weaker as we grow older. You might try looking for a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Clinic in your area. These clinics are mainly for post-partum women with pelvic floor muscle problems, but they sometimes treat men who have problems of this nature.

Take care, and don't let the bad weather get you down.
